Galaxy Note 3 might still sport unbreakable YOUM display, Samsung management with a month to decide

We heard that there are at least three versions in testing before, and one is outfitted with the plastic substrate OLED display of Samsung's YOUM brand, that should make the device more durable should you drop it, thanks to the bendable nature of the screen.
phone is likely to sell, has proven to be a challenge for Samsung, yet a batch is still likely to be greenlit, depending on the production advancements, says a Korean publication, and the management has until the end of August to mull exactly how things will proceed.Now producing those flexible panels for the giant Note 3 in the quantities that the
Apparently by then it will be clear if Samsung Display will be able to churn out enough Full HD screens with plastic substrates, so we can see the first such phone from Samsung materialize in the Note 3, or perhaps a separate version of it with more limited availability, marketed with "unbreakable" display. We cross fingers for at least the latter, as there's still a month to go.

i can only get a note 3 by year end if at all. Really hope that they will have a nice version of it available then. An important lesson in buying gadgets is to hold out until the better versions come along

Samsung Alway waits for LG to come out first... If it was announced that LG will definitely bring out their unbreakable screen "yesterday" for example, then Samsung would announce that theirs will be coming out "today". Samsung only pushes innovation when they're under pressure.

Like other models they make, it'll come in a few variants, which leaves a bitter taste for some. Its beginning to look like KD section at market, which version do you want while only giving spirals or white chess variants to certain markets an not others that want them.

Won't they also need to develop flexible glass coverings for these displays? It would seem to me (anecdotally) that the biggest point of failure on a modern smartphone is the glass display covering. So surely a flexible display is rather meaningless when the glass covering it is still just as easy to scratch and break as before?

neither gorilla nor dragontrail won´t cut. Glass is easy to shatter no matter what. Look at saphire glass used in watches. Hard to scratch, easy to break (although I wratched mine). Plastic? Just the opposite. Maybe they should develop sratch resistant plastic one. .
